Web Engineer, Performance

San Francisco | California | United States

We make Pinterest faster and more delightful for Pinners by inspiring and empowering all engineering teams at Pinterest to improve performance and increase user engagement. We try to find levers that improve and make our apps and clients more performant, and teach other engineers/teams how to do the same on their surfaces. We ensure that performance doesn’t regress and write tools to automatically alert people to keep a high bar in performance. We help investigate and find optimizations so we improve performance in general. You will help the company keep our performance level stable and discover new levers where performance could lead to engagement and drive holistic optimizations against that. You will investigate and implement optimization opportunities, help build the tools and services that keep Pinterest running performantly, and educate and build tools for other engineers in the company to find optimizations. 

What you’ll do:

  • Write features that improve performance or perceived performance
  • Develop tools that track and alert on our metrics
  • Help maintain performance by investigating and fixing regressions
  • Share best practices on performance and other levers to other teams and across engineering
  • Find other performance levers that lead to engagement 

What we’re looking for:

  • 4+ years of software engineering experience 
  • Previously worked on performance optimizations 
  • Ability to work on problems independently, navigate multiple areas, and look for optimizations
  • Deep knowledge of Javascript
  • Understanding of web architecture and efficiency
  • Experience with some of the following: Node, React, Webpack, Docker
